comment Ubuntu tool for showing internet traffic for each process
Cool. This is like top only for network traffic. Lets one pin down PID and troubleshoot from there.

Here is a similar question with interesting answers: superuser.com/questions/366271/… Also, make sure you check out a question on Ask Different, the guy confirms that Apple Remote works with USB to IrDA adapter.

Yet, here's someone from Ask Different who confirms it worked for him with Apple Remote and a similar USB to IrDA adapter: apple.stackexchange.com/questions/9421/…

Also, could you please tell us what is the maximum range you get with your remote and IR adapter?

comment What are USB device resets?
I see, next time, please, try to come up with real reasons for calling something a time bomb. Just for the record, I do not have a cat, or any other pet, I have never pulled cables, this notebook has remained stationery for a couple of years now, chances of having USB ports burn out are about equal to a chance of having direct connection becoming broken, "something else" is funny, could happen even to most thoroughly configured and installed enterprise server. So, stop being so paranoid. This is RAID-1. Having 2 disks go out at the same time, is very unlikely. This is a solid solution. Period.

There is nothing wrong with using USB devices in RAID configuration. It is a perfectly sound idea, all the more so when one considers that it is a home computer, not an enterprise server. You could argue USB throughput limitations, but that is not a concern for me personally. This raid is a lazy approach to backup solution more than anything else.

It is a fairly recent one Linux sega 3.4.2-2-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Jun 12 07:19:42 UTC 2012 i686 GNU/Linux. These are USB 3.0 drives connected to USB 2.0 ports of a notebook.

comment How to adjust Tx Power for MacBook Air mid-2012 Wi-Fi card
Here we go, official answer from AccessAgility Support: "WiFi Scanner reports info directly from API provided by Apple. The API is reporting incorrect value of 1496 mW and has been doing this since 10.6.8 when we first released WiFi Scanner App. The tx power of hardware used by Apple is much lower around 100mW or 50mW" Which is such a relief! Now, back to original question. Is there a way to actually adjust tx power?

I'm going to try and contact WiFiScanner developers and ask them how they pull this tx power value. Anyone knows how I can do that in Mac OS X myself?

Alright, so I've googled for this strangely high 1496mW value and turns out a lot of people see it in all sorts of situations and devices, not just MacBook. So, chances are it is a bogus value reported by WiFiScanner. Here's a reference list: discussions.apple.com/thread/2248433?start=0&tstart=0 dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/… ubuntuforums.org/… linksysinfo.org/index.php?threads/…

Sure, I found this information via WiFiScanner v1.7.4 !Interface Info tab

Alright, so it doesn't do what I need to do. Btw I found another way to install v5.6.1 described here discussions.apple.com/thread/4172563?start=0&tstart=0 In case I wasn't clear enough, I'm not talking about AirPort base station aka wireless router/access point but the wi-fi card/chip inside a Macbook Air.
